to step forward and defend our nation. it is a generation that fought in iraq and still fight in afghanistan. let us dedicate our own lives to giving back to our great nation. as one of our nation possibly%, the strength of our democracy has always rested on the willingness of those who believe in its volume and the will to serve to give something back to this country. it is my privilege to introduce to you the man who spoke those words and lives them every day, our secretary of defense, leon panetta. [applause] >> mr. president, mrs. obama, general dempsey, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, and in particular the family members who lost a loved one here on 9/11. 11 years ago, on a morning very much like this, a terrorist attack the symbols of american- trained. -- american strength. they took the lives of citizens from more than 90 countries. it was the worst terrorist attack on america in our history. today people gather across the united states and around the world to remember the tragic events of 9/11. some take part in ceremonies like this. others spent time in q
that's a large part of it. it's also the ending of the war in iraq, and in effect how the war in afghanistan is no longer front page news the way it should be and the way it was in the past. certainly the main reason why terrorism has receded as a priority is basically because of the success the administration had against al qaeda. we see a threat far different than on 9/11, it's aa far different and weaker threat. most americans while they deal with some of the annoyance of tsa and other security measures put in place since 9/11, i don't think they feel the press of the threat the way they did a number of years ago. >> roger, i imagine there's not one thing you can name, but obviously people wonder. it is the improvement that is we've seen with tsa, some of the other counterterrorism measures in place and even the viewpoint of the cia, the fbi and counterterrorism agencies now working together? i guess the core of my question is, can you say why we have been so fortunate, so blessed, whatever term you choose to describe it for the attack like on 9/11? >> tamron, it's all of t

[cheers and applause] [chanting "u.s.a.!" ] you understand that. and they deserve a president who understands that on the most personal level what they've gone through, what they've given and what they've given up for their country. to us, the real test of patriotism is how we treat the men
re-election and talking about his record and everything from ending the war in iraq to again, health care and also this idea that he's going to fight for the middle class. it's not really a new theme, but that's what they plan to continue hammering home. this idea that he's going to look out for everyday people unlike the republican ticket. one thing they did say is this is going to be a working convention. that's how they described it and they'll work on getting people registered to work and knock on doors, canvass and in doing so, earn a ticket to fill that huge stadium that he's going to be speak at. so we don't have too much of a preview of the speech and we'll try to contain and make the case that he's the one that will give him more time to keep the economy back on track, fred. >> athena jones. thanks so much in urbandale. we'll take the president live when he arrives there in iowa. >>> let's talk about the democratic national convention which starts tuesday, charlotte, north carolina. that's the place right there. some of the high-profile speakers include the first lady, forme

a shout out to the troops overseas serving. my brother was in the first iraq war and certainly that's something i was thinking about and i know a lot of other people were as well. >> so does that suggest they don't really want to talk about afghanistan? do you think you are seeing that from the democrats, because troops are coming home, jeff? >> i don't think it's a concession at all. we have a limited amount of time. the number one issue is jobs and the economy. that's what mitt romney has made this campaign about which i think is exactly the right thing to do and that's what they stay focused on. if you saw the theme it was about jobs, about the economy, and about president obama's record or lack thereof on job improvements. okay, how does the president thread the needle of talking about afghanistan without appearing to be driving the focus away from the bad economy? >> i think two things. first, i think most people understand that the job is multifaceted. it's not like mitt romney didn't bring up foreign issues, he brought up cuba, russia, a lot of places without talking about af
foreign policy milestones, the end of the combat mission in iraq. he did not mention governor combey by name but president obama did challenge romney's harsh assessment of his leadership abroad. >> if you hear anyone trying to fay that america is in decline or that our influence has waned don't you believe it. here's the truth, our alliances t you bver been stronger. >> reporter: obama campaign paignials rebuked romney today inr failing to even mention the troops, veterans or the conflicts in iraq and afghanistan in his convention laidh. in texas, the president laid out fis criteria for future engagement. >> in a world of serious threats, i will never hesitate to use force to defend the united states of america or our interests. at the same time, i will only ilnd you into harm's way when it is absolutely necessary. and when we do, we will give you the equipment and the clear mission and the smart strategy and the support back home that you need to get the job done.

, oftentimes, it is loord is immune to the sanks because they have access to resources, we saw in iraq in the days of saddam hussein. but hypotheticalally, with a second president obam term, there are those, especially on the israeli side who believe that that administration, the next administration, if it is headed up by the current commander in chief, would take a harsher line dpeans the israelis to dissuade them from taking out the iran nuclear program. do you agree with that argument? >> i think that's likely. i take it as a piece of evidence, the famous open microphone conversation between president obama and then russian president medvedev. saying, once i'm free, i can return to my natural inclinations. and the hostility of the obama administration's policy toward israel, generally, but particularly on iran, i think would increase in a second obama term. that would leave israel even more alone, as it faces the existential threat of iran potentially with nuclear weapons. >> bill: it was clear where the delegates for the republicans in tampa stood. when he delivered that line, it w
